LIFE IN THE PURPLE WEDGE!
Finding yourself on the map and how that changes everything.
Van Harden is known nationally for his creative broadcasting career and inventions. Through his 27 year leadership as Program Director of 50 thousand watt WHO radio in Des Moines, the station has been awarded 13 national Marconi Awards, the radio equivalent of the Emmy, five of which he has received personally for his own morning radio program, which he has hosted for those entire 27 years.
He has also owned a radio station and hosted a TV show, but more important to Van has been his 30 years as an adult Bible teacher. He has taught and spoken in many churches and denominations, but has always insisted on teaching straight out of the Bible, which he calls “our owner’s manual.” He and his wife Denise have three grown children, 5 grandchildren and live in his childhood home in Iowa.
